Cayo Coco, Cuba latest addition to Edmonton’s 50-plus non-stop flights

September 4, 2012 (Edmonton, AB) - New seasonal flights from Edmonton International Airport to sun destinations are being added this fall. These include a new non-stop service to Cayo Coco, Cuba courtesy of Sunwing Airlines. In addition, airlines are assigning larger aircraft to some routes in keeping with growing demand. Flights to some hot spots will also kick off a month earlier than usual in order to accommodate the airport's rapidly growing passenger numbers, which are already up 6,5 percent over 2011.

"EIA is the fastest growing major airport in Canada. A record-breaking 6,5 million people have chosen to fly through EIA in the last 12 months," said Peter McCart, EIA's Vice President of Strategy. "EIA's Expansion provides more capacity for airlines and more amenities for passengers, and just in time to accommodate this significant growth. It goes without saying that it's great to see our airline partners responding positively."
